Dietsche said, “that we Episcopalians, of all people, should be blessed once again with the chance to stand by our Serbian Orthodox brothers and sisters and provide them with a roof under which to worship. Our diocese’s relationship with the Orthodox Church, and with St. Sava’s in particular, goes back over 150 years. In 1865, Trinity Episcopal Chapel on West 26th St, which would later become St. Sava’s Cathedral, was the site of the first ever Orthodox liturgy in America. Nearly 80 years later, in 1942, my predecessor, Bishop Manning, oversaw the sale of that same building — the very one that on Sunday was so tragically gutted by fire — to the recently-organized St. Sava’s congregation.”Calvary and St. George’s Churches, where the Serbian congregation will worship this Sunday and next, together make up the parish of Calvary-St. George’s. Now under the direction of the Rev. Jacob Smith, the parish is particularly known for its connection with the foundation of Alcoholics Anonymous, to which its rector from 1925-1952, the Rev. Dr. Samuel Shoemaker, contributed most of its spiritual principles.“The Parish of Calvary-St. George’s, in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of New York, is honored to open our doors to Fr. Djokan Majstorovic and the people of St. Sava’s,” says Calvary-St. George’s priest-in-charge, the Rev. Jacob Smith.

We have never forgotten their kindness and loving acceptance of our members in a time of grief which turned to resolve with their help. It seems the members of Calvary-St. George are offering the same wholehearted hospitality to the people of St. Sava’s, and I am sure they will treasure the same sort of memories we do as the years go by. This is the final commission, that we love one another.

Paxton Named Chair Of Agriculture Program At Ivy Tech Kokomo Region Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Feb 25, 2016 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleEPA ‘Committed’ to Releasing RFS on Time Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE The program offers a variety of Associate of Applied Science degrees and Associate of Science transfer degrees. Graduates of the agriculture program can enter directly into the agriculture workforce in competitive-paying careers or they may transfer to four-year partners of Ivy Tech, including such universities as Purdue, Indiana State, Illinois State, Trine, Huntington, and Colorado State on-line, and the regional campuses of Indiana University. Home Indiana Agriculture News Paxton Named Chair Of Agriculture Program At Ivy Tech Kokomo Region Lisa PaxtonVeteran high school educator Lisa Paxton has been named chair of the agriculture program at Ivy Tech Community College’s Kokomo Region. Paxton served as an agricultural science and business teacher and Future Farmers of America (FFA) adviser at Tippecanoe Valley High School for 30 years. For six years, she has taught dual credit classes there, offering undergraduate, post-secondary credit for high school students through Ivy Tech, Purdue University, and Vincennes University. She has served as an adjunct instructor at Ivy Tech, developing curriculum and instruction in five courses, including introductory courses in crop science and agriculture economics.Paxton, with her husband, also has 20 years of experience as owner/operator of Paxton Farms near Silver Lake, Ind., where she and her family produce row crops and broiler chickens. Paxton Farms was recognized with a “2013 River Friendly Farmer Award” at the Indiana State Fair for environmentally friendly land management practices in Kosciusko and Fulton counties. Paxton has taken an active leadership role in a number of professional organizations and has extensive community service activities. She has been honored as the outstanding agriculture teacher at both the district and state level.Raised on a crop and livestock farm in Wabash County, Paxton said she learned at a very young age the value of producing food, then for a local market and now for a global one. After graduating from Northfield High School, she went on to Purdue University where she decided on a career in agricultural education.“I believe it’s very important that we appreciate the food supply and that the agriculture industry gives the consumer an opportunity to choose the food products that meet their needs. Teaching is the way I chose to share that philosophy,” Paxton said. “In my new role, I want to help Ivy Tech students gain the education and experience they need to be successful in the agricultural industry in whatever fashion they choose. “Actual farmers only account for about 2 percent of the people involved in the agriculture industry,” she noted. “The field offers a huge range of opportunities for jobs and careers.”Agriculture is one of the largest sectors of Indiana’s economy with a $20 billion annual impact and as this sector becomes more high-tech, the need for trained college graduates in agriculture is increasing. The agriculture program at Ivy Tech engages students in hands-on activities in and outside of their classrooms while preparing them for real-world agriculture careers. The program focuses primarily on animal science, plant and soil science, agriculture equipment, and agriculture sales and business.In the program, students are exposed to various areas in the agriculture industry through field experiences and professional guest speaker presentations. Partnerships with industry organizations such as the Indiana FFA, John Deere, Case IH, Indiana Department of Education, and the United States Department of Agriculture enhance the student experience.

News Source: HavanaTime Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world ChileAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists WomenFreedom of expressionViolence November 11, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Chile The Chilean police investigating last week’s murder of the photographer Albertina Martínez Burgos must prioritize the hypothesis that it was linked to her work as a journalist, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) says. November 26, 2019 Chile: RSF calls for exemplary investigation into Chilean photographer’s murder Martínez’s body was found in her Santiago apartment on the night of 21 November. She had been attacked and her camera, laptop and data storage devices had been stolen during the attack. The police immediately concluded that she had been murdered.Aged 38, Martínez worked as a lighting assistant at the TV channel Mega and as a freelance photographer, in recent weeks covering the current wave of protests and violence in Chile. According to several Chilean media outlets, she had been focusing on the crackdown on protesters by the police and army, as her latest Facebook posts suggest. As many of the circumstance surrounding her death are unclear, those close to her have appealed to the media to be prudent in their coverage and to show respect for the family. They have also called on the investigators to consider all hypotheses. “The Chilean police must quickly identify the perpetrators and instigators of this shameful and deliberate killing and must pay the utmost attention to the possibility that this murder was linked to the victim’s work as a photographer,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk. “The climate of hatred stirred up against the press and the police violence that has been seen in recent weeks in Chile are extremely disturbing and must be taken seriously by President Piñera and his government.”Ever since the government announced a Santiago subway fare increase in mid-October, Chile has been shaken by a wave of protests and violence that is without precedent since the end of the dictatorship in 1990. In this very tense climate, RSF has registered many targeted attacks against reporters covering the protests and crisis for both the Chilean and international media, and has condemned these attacks.Chile is ranked 46th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

Iran is stepping up pressure on journalists, including foreign journalists, in run-up to election Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists June 11, 2021 Find out more Organisation As Iran began a new round of talks with the international community on its nuclear programme, a crackdown has been hardening against journalists and netizens. Since the start of the week, coinciding with the start of talks, no fewer than five journalists have been arrested and imprisoned. The authorities in the Islamic Republic of Iran are taking advantage of the discussions and the silence of the international community to step up repression of the media. Intelligence ministry agents yesterday surrounded the main office of the newspaper Shargh and arrested its managing editor, Ali Khodabaksh, and three other journalists: editor in chief, Ahmad Gholami, international editor, Farzaneh Roustaei, and political editor, Keyvan Mehregan. They have all been taken to an unknown location. The reasons for their arrests are unknown. The reformist daily Shargh has been suspended several times since its launch in 2002. Following yet another suspension in 2008, it made a return to newsstands in March 2010. Reporters Without Borders also points out that Emadoldin Baghi, a journalist and emblematic figure in the defence of human rights, particularly for the abolition of the death penalty in Iran, was imprisoned on 5 December. He was sentenced to six years in prison. (http://en.rsf.org/iran-emadoldin-baghi-07-12-2010,38972.html). Said Malekpour, a young computer programmer, was sentenced to death by the revolutionary court, at the end of an unfair trial on 4 December. He was arrested in 2007 by the Revolutionary Guards’ Organised Crime Surveillance Centre. His family said he had been subjected to long periods of solitary confinement and also reportedly been tortured to get him to make a confession.

The government blocked access in March to at least five Internet websites, some of them run by the opposition, charging that they were “platforms for spreading tendentious news, rumours and lies.”The minister earlier today rejected Al-Jazeera’s application to cover the elections, saying the station was “trying to harm Bahrain” and was “infiltrated by Zionists.” The refusal is thought to have been prompted by the station’s unauthorised coverage of demonstrations in the Bahraini capital against the Israeli offensive on the West Bank.

The Antarctic fur seal Arctocephalus gazella is a polygynous Otarid in which a single pup is produced annually by cows over the age of 2 years. Following exploitation to the verge of extinction, a small breeding colony was discovered at Bird Island, South Georgia, in the 1930s. Up to 10000 pups a year were produced in the early 1960s and by 1975 the figure had reached an estimated 90000. The rapid population increase has resulted in the colonization of extensive breeding areas on the adjacent mainland of South Georgia with incipient colonies springing up on more distant parts of the island, and also in the South Sandwich, South Orkney and South Shetland Islands. Age determinations from the teeth of 195 breeding cows reveal a low mean age, early first breeding and a predominance of the younger age groups relative to the age structure of a stable population of northern fur seals Callorhinus ursinus. Annual adult cow survival is estimated at 89.8%, while that of first-year animals is about 64.5%. A decline in the rate of population increase is forecast within ten years and an outline for investigating the most likely factors influencing such a change is suggested.
